“You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes well you might find, you get what you need”
Wise words from the stage strutting genius Mick Jagger. Ok, so what I wanted was a huge, all singing and dancing workshop with ocean views, wall to wall sunshine and Scarlett Johansson bringing me cool drinks and offering to sweep up at the end of the day. After several weeks and quite a bit of trying, what I found was exactly what I needed, a lovely, modestly sized workshop tucked away down a quite country lane in an old farm building just south of Bristol.
Having waited for this moment for the last 2 years, you can all imagine how excited I was to finally get my hands on the keys to my own space. As soul fulfilling and eye-opening as all the travelling and adventures were, I can now at last, get stuck in and start to hand make my furniture designs.
As well as all the positive factors of working in the beautiful, peaceful, picturesque countryside I also have the advantages of access to a fully equipped woodwork machine and spray shop meaning that I can challenge myself to produce anything my imagination dreams up.
Follow the photo sequence; I hope this gives you a good idea of where I will be starting the latest chapter of my design story.
